About Malkin House Farm - Malkin House is an old farming hamlet made up of a cluster of farm cottages on the hills above Holmfirth. These days the hamlet is made up of five houses we believe that the property which we are marketing was probably two cottages historically. It is accessed down a short unmade lane from Brow Lane.

It is believed to date back over 200 years but its actual age is not certain. Our clients have occupied the property for just short of 20 years maintaining its character and adding a modern stable block on the land.

We are informed that the property is connected to mains water and electricity. Drainage is to a septic tank and heating is provided by an LPG fired central heating system. The property is double glazed throughout with hardwood windows to the front and uPVC windows to the rear.
